Wow...I don't know why but I really don't like this show. I find it sloppy and uninspired. The setlist is great and it should be good - a comfortable environment, a home-town crowd, coming off one of their best runs of the year (or ever) from the Fillmore East...but it just doesn't grab me.

It suffers because of what came just before it. I don't know but I find a lot of the West Coast shows in 1970 are not nearly as good as the East Coast shows. Of course, then there's the Winterland show from April...

It's amusing that, as always, there can be such conflicting opinions about the same thing.

I think this show is enthusiastic & sloppy, and to me it's just average for the year. It's basically a quick rock & roll set, but missing the big jams that made 1970 distinctive. Phil is loud in our mix (which gives the impression that he was especially turned up that night). I think this show is mainly famous for being one of the first bootlegged Dead shows (back in '71, thanks to the radio broadcast), so it became very familiar to people who had few other shows to listen to.

I've heard it said, that's what makes this crazy ol' world go round
